Israel Closely Watching Syria for Signs
of Changing Position in Lebanon Conflict

TEL AVIV (JTA) — Is-
raeli circles are viewing
with growing concern
signs that Syria has once
more switched its posi-
tion in the Lebanese civil
war and is allowing Mos-
lem leftists and terrorists
to infiltrate its lines into
Christian-held portions of
southern Lebanon close
to the Israel border.
Syrian units were re-
ported here to have en-
gaged in a violent clash
with Christian Phalan-
gists who they had sup-
ported until recently.
Three Christians were
wounded.
Even more ominous, ac-
cording to the sources, was
the capture of the Christ-
ian township of Bint-el-
Djabel, only three miles
from Israel's border, by
leftists aided by terrorists
who were permitted to
pass through the Syria
lines.
Although the Christ-
ians are well armed and
organized in the south
where they have formed
the South Lebanese
Army, terrorists are
apparently able to seize
and hold key villages in
the region which could
serve as bases for re-
newed incursions against
Israel.
The Syrians, who origi-
nally backed the PLO in
Lebanon, but later
changed sides to help the
Christians, reportedly
shifted back to the ter-
rorist side as a result of
the Arab mini-summit
conference at Riyadh,
Saudi Arabia.
This shift means that
the tacit understanding
between Israel and Syria
that both countries would
exercise restraint in the
Lebanese conflict may
have ended. The incident
between the Syrians and

Shah of Iran Tells Interviewer
American Jews 'Too Powerful'

NEW YORK (JTA) —
Shah Mohammed Riza
Pahlevi of Iran said that
in his view the Jewish
lobby in the United
States "is too powerful"
and "sometimes they are
disserving the interests
of Israel."
In an interview with
Mike Wallace of CBS
News; broadcast on the
TV network, the Shah
was asked to explain his
remark that the Jewish
lobby did a disservice to
the interest of Israel.
He said: "They are
pushing around too many
people . . . well, pressur-
ing. They have many
means at their disposal.
They are putting on pres-
sure on many, many
people. At the end, I don't
think that it will even
help Israel."
He said that American
Jews are "strong" because
"they are controlling many
things," and this is the
reason American presi-
dents pay attention to
them.
When asked by Wallace
what the Jews are con-
trolling in the U.S., the

Shah replied: "Newspap-
ers . . . medias . . .
banks, finance . . . and I
am going to stop here."
He added that the New
York Times and the
Washington Post re-
flected the Jewish lobby
power in the volume of
news they print on
Zionist and Arab ques-
tions.
Turning to the issue of
the Palestinians, the
Shah said that the Pales-
tinians "must know that
there is only a limit to
where they can go and
bully the world" by "ter-
rorism and blackmail and
this and that."
The Shah also said that
the Palestinians should
"really open their eyes,
reassert their situation"
and start a "new policy,
because the actual one is
going to lead them
nowhere."
Asked about Col.
Muammar el-Quaddaft
and his support of Pales-
tinian terror, the Shah
said: "He's crazy," ad-
ding, "No doubt, the man
is absolutely irresponsi-
ble and crazy."

Phalangists is considered
to be of special signifi-
cance.
Israeli circles point out
that the terrorists are now
better armed and better
trained as a result of 18
months of fighting in
Lebanon. Premier Yitzhak
Rabin and Defense Minis-
ter Shimon Peres have re-
peatedly warned that Is-
rael would not tolerate the
return of terrorist forces
into southern Lebanon and
the resumption of ter-
rorist attacks on Israeli
border villages.
Talk of the so called
"red line" on the Litani
River, the boundary
beyond which Israel
would not let the ter-
rorists pass, has been re-
vived in recent days after
having been forgotten for
months.
Some terrorist units
are already well south of
that line. But the "red
line" was never specifi-
cally defined as to its lo-
cation or by any physical
features.
In Jerusalem, Premier
Yitzhak Rabin has ruled
out a meeti.ng with the
representatives of Christ-
ian villages in southern
Lebanon because Israel's
policy is not to intervene
in the internal affairs of
its neighbors.
Defense Minister Shi-
mon Peres said that Is-
rael would help the resi-
dents of southern Leba-
non defend themselves
against terrorists if they
requested such aid.

ever, that Israeli soldiers

More Than 2,000 Expected
at Federation Convention

PHILADELPHIA
(JTA) — More than 2,000
Jewish leaders represent-
ing 800 communities in

Israeli Cabinet Approves
Arnon Gafni to Bank Post

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
The Cabinet has ap-
proved the appointment
of Arnon Gafni, director
general of the Finance
Ministry, to the post of
Governor of the Bank of
Israel. At the same time,
it rescinded the appoint-
ment of Asher Yadlin who
was arrested last week on
charges of accepting
bribes and other illegal
acts while chairman of
Kupat Holim, the Histad-
rut sick fund.
Premier Yitzhak Ra-
bin, who proposed Gafni,
stressed that his nomina-
tion should not be con-
strued as a pre-
judgement of guilt on the
part of Yadlin who was
Rabin's original choice
for the post. He also said it
was in way an attempt to
influence the current
police investigation of
Yadlin and several of his
associates.
The Cabinet's official
neutrality in the Yadlin
affair was indicated by
the fact that Gafni was
appointed only after
Rabin had asked State
Attorney General Aha-
ron Barak whether the
police could conclude
their investigation by
Nov. 1 when the new Gov-
ernor of the Bank of Is-
rael is scheduled to take
office and whether it was

ARNON GAFNI

possible to name a deputy
governor to take charge
until Yadlin's fate is de-
cided. Barak replied in
the negative to both
questions.

Gafni, 44, a professional
economist, is regarded as
well qualified for the pre-
stigious and 'influential
post as head of the Bank of
Israel.

Objections to his ap-
pointment were raised
last week by Finance
Minister Yehoshua
Rabinowitz, who did not
want to lose his key man
in the Treasury. But
Rabinowitz agreed Sun-
day to release Gafni from
his duties at the Finance
Ministry.
